SCF 260®

SCF 260® is an austenitic, nitrogen-strengthened stainless steel with an excellent combination of strength including rotating fatigue, and corrosion resistance in chloride environments. A special ID treatment applied to hollow bars has been shown to enhance stress-corrosion cracking resistance and the controlled chemistry of this alloy has provided a PREN of higher than 35, yielding superior pitting corrosion resistance. Careful control of chemistry and processing results in fewer grain-boundary carbides and increased strength.
